Are we really planning ahead?

Re: Six lanes makes sense (Letters, NewsLeader, March 26)

The letter from Daryl Dela Cruz struck a chord with me.

What we need is more foresight regarding future projects by thinking about what is waiting for us ahead.

This seems to be overlooked too often nowadays. Surrey, I read, is on course to surpass Vancouver’s population in the long run since they have the space. In view of this, it’s hard for me to believe a four-lane Pattullo Bridge is being proposed. We would be sorry soon after it opened! It would not meet future demands, but how many years down the road would it be too narrow again?
